UK-based Night Train Theatre Company is now accepting script submissions for an autumn/winter 2019 production.

45 mins+ run time
2-3 characters, at least one which can be played by a female actor
We are particularly interested in scripts that tell untold/little-known stories with an international perspective or inflection.
Original translations and adaptations are also welcome.
Scripts may have been previously produced — we’re as excited about the world premiere of good writing as we are in third or fourth (or more!) productions.

Please email your submissions to by AUGUST 7, 2019. In your email, please include:
a full PDF of the script
playwright name
playwright country of residence
brief playwright biography (1-3 sentences)

There is no submission fee.

Send us your scripts (we can’t wait to read them) & please spread the word!


REHEARSED READING @ hotbed THEATRE festival 2019

Night Train will return to Hotbed Festival on Sunday, 21 July! Join us at 12:30 at the Cambridge Junction where we’ll present our work-in-progress reading of EPYLLION, an original adaptation of Virgil’s Aeneid written by Night Train co-founder Alona Bach!

Actually, join for the whole weekend: there’s a brilliant line-up of companies telling stories about Soviet history, Greek mythology, dance, Brexit, and more.

Thanks to Menagerie Theatre Company for bringing us on board!
